On a Collette Spotlight trip, travelers use one hotel in a strategic city and travel from there each day, allowing them to develop a familiarity with that city. We stayed in the Grand Hotel Tettuccio in Montecatini Terme, and by the end of the week, both felt like home. We walked every evening through town, and by week’s end, our walks concluded with dessert and coffee at Pasticerria Giovannini near the city square.
We downloaded Collette’s Compass app before we left home and used it extensively in airports for checking into flights and monitoring gate changes. It included useful information on each city we visited, organized by day of arrival, and provided walking directions, web links and phone numbers for museums, restaurants and other sites. Everything was at our fingertip.
